Lee Ridley AKA Lost Voice Guy can’t talk but isn’t silent. He is (probably) the first stand up comedian to use a communication aid. He won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2014.
Since making his first stand up performance in February 2012, Ridley has already gained quite a reputation for being both very funny and very unique. He has been described as “a wonderful comedian” by Little Britain’s Matt Lucas and has been tour support for the likes of Ross Noble, Patrick Kielty and Jason Cook. He also appeared alongside The Boy With Tape On His Face in front of 1,500 people at a charity gig in Edinburgh.
After supporting him on his warm up tour, Ross described Lost Voice Guy as “a very funny guy”, Sean Hughes thinks he is “fantastic” and Greg Proops says that he is “tremendous”.
He has also featured on the BBC, CNN, The Independent, The Sun and The Mail on Sunday. An article about him in The Guardian said that finding humour in strange places was one of his strengths.
